to explain the misleading information given out in the days after the september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. four americans including the u.s. ambassador to libya died in what we now know was a terrorist attack. but that isn't what the u.s. ambassador to the united nations susan rice said when she went on national television five days after the attack. today rice is up on capitol hill. she's explaining what happened and some big-name republicans clearly are not very happy with her answers. our senior congressional correspondent dana bash is following what's become a pretty long day -- a tiring day for the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. what's the latest, dana? >> reporter: wolf, the three republican senators who had vowed to block susan rice from being secretary of state if the president nominates her had really softened the rhetoric in recent days. i'm told the reason for that was because it was a curtesy in order for them to wait until they had a face-to-face meeting with her which was today. after that meeting their criticism was harsher than ever. the way thes

prodded. the bottom line on this is the president used every opportunity he could to say that there is an ongoing investigation and deferred this topic to the fbi and the department of defenses inspector generals. those are the two areas the doj and d.o.g. is ongoing. this is the first time the president has been asked about these issues. but as more details come out, i'm certain it won't be the last. >> certainly won't be the last. jessica, thanks very much. new information coming in on the entire petraeus investigation. but right now let's go to the angry political fight that's unfolding between the president and republican senators john mccain and lindsay graham. it began to escalate earlier this morning when the senators vowed to stand in the way of the president if -- if he goes ahead and nominates the united nations ambassador susan rice to replace hillary clinton secretary of state. mccain and graham are scathing of rice's early remarks about the deadly attack on the u.s. diplomats in benghazi, libya. >> this is about the role she played around four dead americans

at the very least, would be distributed, the port-a-potties would be used here. >> that's what the new york marathon is saying, they will mobilize the generators, the water, the food that was going to be used. the people need those port-a-potties. they don't have anywhere to go. >> no place around here. >> the reason people are staying in their homes, that's because there's looting going on. people's homes are being robbed. so to compound the tragedy, compound the devastation, now these poor people basically, they don't want to leave. the temperatures are dropping. within the last hour or two, it dropped 20 degrees and the people here really desperately need help. imagine if they took those buses they were going to use to transport runners and brought volunteers out to help these people. >> appreciate the reporting. i want to bring in staten island assemblywoman, who says new york should have canceled the marathon. obviously you're pleased it's been canceled. we were talking about this before we went on air. there's all those port-a-potties sitting there. when i saw them i was kind of stunn

regarding the fiscal cliff and his obama line. tell us what it is. >> that's right, suzanne. he has laid out that his negotiating terms include the following. he is willing to compromise and raise some revenue by altering some parts of medicare and medicaid on entitlement reforms. he is also insistent that some revenue be raised by changing the tax rates. you know, those bush tax cuts expire at the end of this year, and he has said that the wealthiest americans must pay more. we've heard it on the campaign trail over and over. one thing he has hit is that those who make $250,000 and more must pay more. maybe he'll move that number. who knows. he did say quite clearly the white house has that they would veto any bill that does not include a tax increase for the wealthiest americans, suzanne. >> jessica, we heard boehner, john boehner, actually within the last 30 minutes or so talking about that there are ways to raise revenue and spending cuts as well in a all options are on the table. do you think the white house sees that as some sort of opening, if you will, to negotiations? >> i think bot

between democrats and republicans and so i think all of us have responsibilities to see if there are things we can improve on. and i don't exempt myself from needing to, you know, do some self-reflection and see if i can improve our working relationship. they're probably going to still be some sharp differences. and as i said during the campaign, there are going to be times where there are fights and i think those are fights that need to be had. but what i think the american people don't want to see is a focus on the next election instead of a focus on them. and i don't have another election. and, you know, michelle and i were talking last night about, you know, what an incredible honor and privilege it is to be put in this position. and there are people all across this country, millions of folks, who worked so hard to help us get elected, but there are also millions of people who didn't vote for us but are counting on seriously. i take that responsibility very seriously and i hope and intend to be an even better president in the second term than i was in the first. jona
